FREE Outdoor Screening of Locally Made Shorts at El Rio!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

The experience of a drive-in movie is second to none. There is the chance to relax in your car, find the best position to see through the dirty windshield and if you’re lucky, maybe even trying to get a little cozy over the stick shift. Sadly, drive in theaters have all but closed up around the city, and outdoor movie enthusiasts are trying their best to keep up the trend. With our Indian Summer coming to a rapid close, the last night of the Bernal Heights Outdoor Cinema series has made it just before the fall.

Tonight at El Rio, one of our favorite watering holes at, is offering a free two and a half hour screening on their spacious patio of locally made shorts and movies that are independently produced, shot and edited. Topics range from a small documentary on the infamous Cockettes to a post-apocalyptic thriller to a dramatization of a gay People’s Court — those three alone among many are no reason to miss this tonight. Bring your poncho, get cozy and grab a drink — we’ll see you there!

Easy Ways to Not Get Sick This Season

Monica Miller - The Intern

Monica Miller - The Intern

Ms. Miller was born in San Diego, CA to one lesbian mother and one
righteous, cheap father. Currently, she is enrolled at San Francisco
State University for a B.A. in Journalism and the approximate
completion date is around 2015. She has worked for many papers in the
Bay Area, including the Oakland Tribune and the San Mateo Country
Times and is currently the city editor at one of the most
underappreciated publications in SF, the Golden Gate [X]press. Though
she may find bargains aplenty, it only stems from the necessity of
never landing an actual job and working for hacks [like Stuart.] With
intelligence, style, poise, bite, and honesty, she will rip your heart
out; but not before writing some awesome, poignant shit. This year,
she is looking forward to bigger and better things such as: trying to
get paid for a gig, actually finding a date that isn't a loser or
fucking crazy, not calling her parents when hungover and bringing you
the best of the 7x7 everyday of the week. [By the way, I wasn't
kidding about the date thing; if you love food, booze and shoegaze,
get at me.]
